I was duped!

Any additional comments?

This audio book is incorrectly labeled as "Unabridged" but in reality it’s very much “Abridged." Please change it.

A book that will change the way you present

Where does The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?


The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs
My presentations will never be the same! I learned so much from this book. I listened to this book in one sitting! Steve Jobs’ presentations catapulted him to messianic status and Apple to being the epicycloid of the smart phone industry. Although his presentations seems informal and spontaneous, this book clearly shows a pattern that Jobs used and emphasizes the hours of practice that produced these insanely great presentations. Toastmasters International has been helping people learn and practice tools to help them become great speakers for decades. This book takes those principles of gestures, eye contact, using a prop, writing it out, organizing the content, using vocal variety and the pause, and gives examples of where jobs used them and what he said.
Then comes the “insanely great” part: Jobs threw in a “Holy Smokes!!!” moment and reinterpreted the use of slides. How to create the HS moment is included and can be adapted to any topic. For anyone who uses PowerPoint in their presentations, this book is a must! Learning how to use the slides like Jobs did can change the audience from yawning to inspired.
When I want to increase my understanding of a topic, I borrow the book from the library and buy the Audible book. I listen as I read. This narrator made a mess of the book. Many paragraphs were totally skipped, he paraphrased and changed words. He totally skipped examples from Steve’s speeches. He read so slowly that when I listened to the book alone, I had to change the reading rate to 1.5.

Can't recommend this highly enough!

Would you listen to The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs again? Why?

I'm on my third run through, I listen everytime I have an important presentation to deliver.

Any additional comments?

I have only used a handful of the tips in this book and they have worked a treat. I recently gave a presentation that a second person had added slides to. My slides were "Jobs style", the others were traditional bullet points and text. I noticed the audience switching from captivation to bored disinterest and back again between the different types of slides. Enough said!
